Greetings all, I haven’t written in what feels like decades so time to tidy up and finish what I started, so I can tell you all about my 2018 and how 2019 should be a much better year.
The previous post was about how the magic of the ancestors flowed through me and I was able to slick my 4b/4c hair. Well tonight I’m here to tell you about all the different options that open up once you learn that your very thick, curly hair can in fact be sleek.
In all my trial and error, I did learn that too much product leads to a white flaky look and no one wants that at all. That sounds like a pretty obvious conclusion but I figured it out and that’s all that matters.
The High Pony
One of my absolute favorite hairstyles of all time is the high ponytail. I feel like everyone can definitely rock it, as long as they don’t mind a headache or two…
This ponytail took me all day to prep but I really loved it. I mixed 1 pack of kanekalon braiding hair with a few strands of marley braiding hair to make it look more realistic.
Something about a high ponytail is just so regal and cute!
Also this adorable sea foam faux fur is from H&M and it is one of my favorite pieces.
The High Braided Pony
This is a great alternative to the regular high ponytail because it there is more room to personalize it, with jewels, beads and string.
All I did here was braid down my jumbo ponytail, and then pull some to fluff it up a bit.
On the bottom I tied a black rubber band, wrapped the remaining hair around a flexi rod, and dipped in hot water for a sassy little curl at the end.
This style made me feel very high fashion, I’m not sure why but I may have enjoyed this more than the regular ponytail.
Overall I definitely recommend this as a quick cheap style if you don’t know what to do with your hair for a week or two.
Don’t tie your hair too tight, or you WILL get a headache and try to rip it off before you get back home…
